COVERS THE LIFE CYCLE & HABITS OF THE ANT & EFFECTIVE METHODS OF CONTROL & EXTERMINATION WITH INSECTICIDES.
Ken Smith sez: This film tells us that ants are "a pest to man" and then shows us how to "treat" them with Chlordane. Some treat. We see a woman spreading Chlordane around a kitchen, and a man spreading it around a basement and an outdoor barbecue (yum). As this film ends, we are assured that the man will return to his barbecue "without fear that ants will spoil his fun." The film's beginning shows closeups of ants as high-pitched voices shouting "We're hungry! We're hungry" are heard on the soundtrack.
